I was wondering why the media seems to have begun to inexplicably assume their role as reporters and truth tellers about the criminal Obama enterprise rather than, as Greg Gutfeld astutely phrased it on FNC’s The Five the other day, function as Obama’s Scandal Condoms.
The Associated Press seems to have finally ‘gotten’ what the rest of us knew all along. And they’re no more pleased to be targeted by the thugocracy than the rest of us. Welcome to the party, AP,
Obama is now officially in trouble. He woke up the media to what he’s all about. Look out.

The records obtained by the Justice Department listed outgoing calls for the work and personal phone numbers of individual reporters, for general AP office numbers in New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn., and for the main number for the AP in the House of Representatives press gallery, according to attorneys for the AP. It was not clear if the records also included incoming calls or the duration of the calls.
In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012. The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown, but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.
You just don’t go and mess with the AP. Tea Partiers….um…whatever. AP was fine with that. But the AP? Just now you’re realizing that you’re in the same pot of water as the tea partiers and the temperature is steadily increasing?
The deliciousness of this epiphany is greatly appreciated, although it’s about 8 months too late. OK, 4 years and 8 months too late. Thanks to you, Associated Press, we now have to suffer through impeachment. If you’d done your job in the first place it would simply have been an electoral defeat.
But no. And now you’re in high dudgeon.
Welcome to the party, bitches.
